Stated specifications are applicable to //M R2 versions.
The industry commonly markets 4K IOPS benchmark to make numbers look high. Real world IO does not come in convenient 4/8K blocks and it gets even more interesting as you consolidate multiple workloads in the same array. Pure Storage has optimized the FlashArray for the real-world. FlashArray adapts automatically to 512B-32KB IO for superior performance, scalability, and data reduction.
* Data throughput is based on 100% 32KiB reads.
Displayed capacity is effective capacity, unless otherwise noted. Effective capacity assumes HA, RAID, and metadata overhead, GB-to-GiB conversion, and includes the benefit of data reduction with always-on & global inline deduplication, compression, deep reduction, and pattern removal. Average data reduction is calculated at 5-to-1. Some customers see data reduction in excess of 20-to-1. Effective capacity has no upper limit and will vary depending on workload.
Capacity is purchased and added to the chassis in capacity packs of 10 x Flash Modules. The chassis capacity packs are 5, 10, 20, 38, and 76 TBs. Expansion shelf capacity packs consist of 12 x Flash Modules and come in sizes of 11, 22, 45, and 90 TBs. In both cases, the chassis and expansion shelves support two capacity packs each.
//m20 can be expanded beyond the 3U base chassis with expansion shelves.
673 TBs effective capacity in 5U
Up to 1.5 PBs effective capacity in 7U
NV-RAM specifications are calculated per //m system
* These arrays can add up to 4 external shelves for a total of 11U
** Unloaded //m system without NV-RAM Modules, Flash Modules, or Blank Carriers
*** //m system with 2 x NV-RAM Modules, 10 x Flash Modules, 10 x Blank Carriers, and Bezel
**** //m system with 2 x NV-RAM Modules, 20 x Flash Modules, and Bezel
† //m system with 4 x NV-RAM Modules, 10 x Flash Modules, 10 x Blank Carriers, and Bezel
†† //m system with 4 x NV-RAM Modules, 20 x Flash Modules, and Bezel
Host connectivity and ports are calculated per HA system. The Pure Storage FlashArray serves IO from both active/active controllers
* 4-port Fibre Channel cards may only be populated in PCIe Slots 0 and 1
